"I feel nothing
I feel everything.
I don’t know which is worse."
"Something inside is hurting you – that’s why you need cigarettes or whiskey, or music turned so fucking loud you can’t think."
"I didn’t realize how badly I was treated until someone started treating me with respect."
Can I just say something?
You may think that there is no one out there that will love you and want to be with you because you’re depressed, because maybe your body is covered in scars, because maybe you’re ashamed of your body or your entire life but I promise you that there is someone out there that will fill in the void in our heart that will make you feel like your life is worth living, someone who will actually kiss your scars…each and every one of them, someone who will tell you how so fucking beautiful you are even if you don’t believe it simply because you deserve to hear the truth for once in your life. Relationships like this don’t just happen. It’s a series of trial and error. Your boyfriend/girlfriend tells you to “just be happy” dump them. You don’t need or deserve that type of shit in your life. Someone will come into your life unexpectedly, maybe in one of your classes at school and you may think they come off as an asshole with a bad attitude about life but give this person a chance. You may just find that s/he is dealing with depression as well but just copes with it differently than you. Talk to this person. You may end up together and be happier than you’ve been in years. How do I know all of this? Because this guy is now my boyfriend of almost a year and every single day we help one another to stay strong. I promise you there is someone out there waiting for you to fill the void in their heart just as they will do the same for you.
